RISE OF DAVID BOWIE 1972-1973 HC
TASCHEN AMERICA L.L.C.
(W) Mick Rock
A unique tribute from David Bowie's official photographer and creative partner, Mick Rock, compiled in 2015, with Bowie's blessing. In 1972, David Bowie released his groundbreaking album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
. With it landed Bowie's Stardust alter ego: a glitter-clad, mascara-eyed, sexually ambiguous persona who kicked down the boundaries between male and female, straight and gay, fact and fiction into one shifting and sparkling phenomenon of '70s self-expression. A key passenger on this glam trip into the stratosphere was fellow Londoner and photographer Mick Rock. This collection brings together spectacular stage shots, iconic photo shoots, as well as intimate backstage portraits.
